The Manor, St. Paul, Minnesota
This Gothic manor has the perfect vibe for a spooky stay. This haunted Airbnb looks a bit like a castle, with its antique furniture, spiral staircase and turret, the home has the feel of a place where ghosts would want to hang out. Rent out the guest room, if you dare. Paranormal activity in the form of “vibes” coming from one particular closet and visions of a young girl who died in the house in 1908. You should also know that the owner’s Doberman, Scorch, gets high praise from reviewers on The Manor’s Airbnb page. Here are eight famous houses you may recognize—all of which are available to rent on Airbnb.
The Vintage Estate, La Cañada Flintridge, California
